Growing up my grandmother made a recipe that we all called Greasy Rice. It was the BEST rice. Unfortunately no one every got her recipe from it but I’ve always wanted to try my hand at it and this recipe was it! It’s so flavorful and reminds me so much of eating at her dining room table. My son said it was the best rice I’ve ever made and I absolutely agree. It’s amazing.
1/3 cup butter
1/2 yellow onion (finely diced)
1 1/2 cups long grain white rice
3 cups chicken stock
salt and pepper
Melt the butter in a sauce pan. Saute the onion for 3-4 minutes or until soft. Stir in the rice and coat with butter. Pour in the chicken stock and season with salt and pepper. Cover and bring to a boil then reduce heat and cook for 15-18 minutes. Turn off heat but do not remove the pan from the stove and let cook for another 10 minutes. Remove from stove top and serve.
